1st Post.

Picked up my 2013 GS 350, Saturday! Fell in love with it the first day.

Sure has a learning curve. The NAV screen is high-tech and filled with valuable interfaces. But anyone that buys such a fine automobile should spend time learning it and taking care of it. That should go without saying. My wife thinks I'm obsessed already.

Just happy to be an owner of a great car that has a great history of dependability.

Hi, picked up my GS350 on April 30, 2012. Base car but loaded with Luxury Package, Blind Spot Monitor, Intuitive Park Assist, Mark Levinson Audio, etc. Was a Mercedes owner for many years, but after driving the new GS350, I had to have it.

Been having some problems with wind noise at left driver's window, a little vibration in steering wheel, etc. It's been at Lexus for a few days, But soon, will be enjoying it again

An established member of this forum. I had a CT200h that I traded for a new Platinum Silver GS350. Here a couple of pictures that I snapped after I picked up my new drive.

2013 GS 350 AWD
Liquid Platinum/Black
Navigation
Blind Spot Assist
Premium, plus extras

Had tested Audi A6, BMW 535i x-drive, Mercedes E550, and decided on this.

Hi everyone. Just bought a new GS350 base with Levinson, Luxury Pkg., Intuitive Park Assist, NAV, Heads Up Display, Blind Spot Monitor, etc. This is my first Lexus since my 2001 GS300 after owning BMW's 5 Series and Mercedes E Class cars. They really have done a superb job on this vehicle! Handles smoothly yet stiff enough on cornering. I LOVE THIS CAR!

I live in southeast Florida and after retiring from school administration, was a manager in a luxury import dealership. Now I am retired and enjoying life and my new GS350.

Color is Nebula Gray with Flaxen interior.

Default Possible New GS Owner (1st post here)

Hi All,
Have been looking for a new car and almost pulled the trigger on a '12 BMW 528 xDrive. Today I decided to go next door to the Lexus dealer and check out the 2013 GS350 AWD. All I can say is WOW!! What an automobile!! Optionwise, BMW can't hold a candle to this car, from what I can see. Test drove both BMW and the Lexus. Lexus has a more refined ride IMHO. Going back Monday morning to talk about a Starfire Pearl/Flaxen with Premium package.

Chris

About a month ago, traded in my 2006 IS350 for a new 2013 GS350 AWD F-Sport in Liquid Platinum. Needed something bigger as I'm getting ready to have a family

Picked her up on my Birthday (month)- gift to me! I also MIGHT be the youngest GS owner here.

1. GS F-sport
2. Neb Gry / Cab
3. Nav / Mark Levinson
4. RWD
5. no DRS (thought all F's came with it, not the "other' F-sport pkg- kinda pissed)
6. lower and remove all chrome trim pieces

Other vehicle considerations (wide range I know):
C63 AMG coupe (3 awful dealer experiences trying to special order one) - still the car I want though
2012 E92 M3 (had a 2008 and BMW is still asking an arm and a leg even though its discontinued)
2013 Mustang GT California - awesome motor/ too many plastic bits even with Cal Pkg
2012 BMW 5 Series w/ M sport kit - way overpriced for less options and luxury than Lexus
2012 Ford Raptor
2012 Dodge Charger SRT8- sick machine but waaaay too heavy
2012 Jeep Cherokee SRT8- could not justify 60-65k on a Dodge

Came from a modded IS300 with headers/removed cats with straight d-pipe/ l-sportline body kit/ erebuni vented hood/ other cosmetic accessories

Why did I choose this?
Once I sat inside and drove this thing I was sold immediatelty. Where the above ones did not grab my attention this way emotionally (except the AMG).

(pics to come)

Congrats and welcome. Sounds like you did a lot of research. What kind of deal did you get?

Default New Lexus

2013 GS 350 F Sport AWD
Riveria Red Back Interior
Not many options to be had on this model. We did clear bra and tinted the windows some more
I also got the paint sealer which on the BMW really does seem to work

Mods will be to add a fog l;ight

Get a set of wheels and tires to run a winter and summer set up.
The wheels are not that common yet it seems 19x8 with a 45mm offset

It is nice to see an active Lexus site and there is talk of performance.

We drove the BMW 5 series X drive
Infinity M37 AWD
Audi A6
Acura TL AWD

It is my wife's car and when she started to look at the F sport over the regular GS and said she liked it I jumped at it.
